[Brett Sherman] "[Chris Harlan] "disregard all other evidence to the contrary."

When the alternative argument that Apple will definitely drop the Mac Pro is based on the fact that Apple makes too much money on other products, I'm not sure my hopes look all that delusional.

On the face of it, the point you are making might seem obvious, but the reality behind it is probably quite different. The computer/ProApps forces are undoubtedly so internally impotent that all it would take to kill it is something as simple as enough people on the device side agreeing that the carbon footprint of the Mac Pro is unjustifiable. Recently, all Apple had to do was bring some fans into compliance to continue selling the Mac Pro in Europe, and instead decided to just shut it down. The only real reason to keep it alive at this point is PR, and even that is marginal, plus, they can probably get more value out of killing it for green purposes, than worrying about what some last century video folks think. It's just not really there business anymore. Plus, the iMacs are zippy.
